We would like to list out some of the points to be considered for an effective Litter Management.

Before getting started… 

It is suggested to have +1 Litter Box for the number of cats you have. If you have got 2 cats, then buy 3 Litter Boxes for them. This will allow the user to have easy accessibility to the boxes, and you don’t have to run around searching for it. Also, have a close eye on your kitten after they are done with the meals. Let’s begin!

Make a Routine

After your kitten has eaten their food, give some time for the kitten to settle down. Then after some time, lift them and gently place them in the litter box. If they are in a mood to sleep, let them finish the sleep first. As they woke up, you can try to place them in the litter box.

You will be surprised to know that cats prefer digging their paws in the litter and hiding all their ‘business’ in it. To get started with this, you can gently lift their front paw and do a small demo of digging and scratching the litter.

According, you can give him praises for each achievement of his. Or sing any sonnet or haikus for appreciating him. These are just tips to keep your cat entertained and feel light during the litter use. Another point is that, if your cat is not adjusting well with the litter, then don’t force the little guy. They will learn on their own; you need to give some time.
